Begun the other day, I finished these two paintings, today. Wishing to play a bit, I alternately sponged on paint and gesso, dragged and rubbed colour around to create their backgrounds. I worked on them simultaneously, letting each air dry between applications of thin, watery colour. Magnolias has a healthy dose of metallic, copper paint. They are acrylic and mixed media. Mixed media because I used rubber stamps for the flourishes and the delicate, lacy flower bits.

Magnolia 8" x 8"

Funky Flower 8" x 8"

These two pieces are my donations to Hanging Out Art (a clothes line art sale) happening on Saturday, in Canmore. They are unsigned because the identity of the artist isn't revealed until after you've made your purchase ... in essence making this post, a sneaky, sneak preview! All proceeds go to The Mountain Arts Foundation. ArtsPeak is a well rounded arts festival which kicks off tonight and runs through until Sunday, June 20th. For a look at what's on offer please click here:

Both of our daughters will be selling their craft, Saturday and Sunday, in the Art Fair on Main Street, which will be closed to vehicular traffic.
